Introduction.- Cognitive Radio Architectures.- Wideband Voltage Controlled Oscillator.- RF Sampling and Signal Processing.- CRAFT: Charge Re-use Analog Fourier Transform.- Conclusions.
This book focuses on the architecture and circuit design for cognitive radio receiver front-ends. The authors first provide a holistic explanation of RF circuits for cognitive radio systems. This is followed by an in-depth exploration of existing techniques that can be utilized by circuit designers. Coverage also includes novel circuit techniques and architectures that can be invaluable for designers for cognitive radio systems.
Discusses in detail the circuit-level challenges that exist for cognitive radio systems
Provides readers with a holistic understanding of RF circuits for cognitive radio systems
